BOSTON — Ron Curry scored 22 points — including a deep, step-back 3-pointer to shake his defender and shut the door on a rally — as James Madison held off Northeastern 75-63 on Thursday night.

Curry's dagger with 6:22 remaining put the Dukes up 67-57 with 6:28 left to play, and was one of four 3-pointers he buried in the game. Curry scored more than 20 points for the seventh time this season.

James Madison (13-5, 3-2 Colonial Athletic) shot 10-for-19 from 3-point range, with Shakir Brown and Jackson Kent each hitting two. The Dukes shot 67-percent from the floor in the first half, leading 42-27 at the break.

Northeastern (11-7, 3-2) steadily cut the gap after halftime, coming as close as 61-55 before Kent and Curry hit consecutive treys.

Jeremy Miller led the Huskies with 19 points before fouling out, David Walker added 13 points.

Yohanny Dalembert scored 14 for James Madison.
